Nutraceutical Proteins and Peptides in Health and Disease (Nutraceutical Science and Technology)

Buy

Reports of the beneficial health effects of some peptides have begun to make their way into the scientific literature. Peptides can act as immunomodulators, and have been shown to have a positive influence on calcium absorption, and on regulation of serum cholesterol. A number of peptides may also possess antimicrobial properties that enhance the body's defense mechanisms, and others may produce inhibitory effects for angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE), leading to novel treatments for blood pressure conditions, heart failure, and diabetes. Modern food biotechnology may also allow for the production of highly important products for those suffering life-altering food allergies.

A compendium of cutting-edge information for research scientists and clinicians

Nutraceutical Proteins and Peptides in Health and Disease is the first book that provides comprehensive discussions on bioactive proteins and peptides in the area of nutraceutical and functional foods. It looks at protein and peptide impact on the body's absorption, defense, regulating, and nervous systems, then delves into hypo-allergenic foods and modern approaches to nutraceutical research and production. With 32 chapters written by 63 scientists working at the frontier of this revolutionizing field, it includes state-of-the-art information on--

  • The cholesterol-lowering capabilities of proteins and peptides
  • Opioid-like peptides
  • The antibodies found in milk and egg yolks
  • Enzymes derived from traditional Asian fermented foods found useful in novel thrombolytic therapy
  • ACE-inhibitory peptides
  • Enzymatic treatments used to create anti-allergenic food
  • Recent developments in proteomics that are making certain processes economically feasible, including those employed in the binding of bioactive peptides

Nutraceutical Proteins and Peptides in Health and Disease provides a compendium of cutting-edge information that can be put to direct use in research, therapy, and production. Biochemists, nutritional scientists, food scientists, and health professionals, as well as graduate students in these fields, will find this book highly useful.
